The building of the local government (starostwo) in Rybnik ranks among the most beautiful examples of historicizing styles of architecture in Upper Silesia, which alludes to the so-called Northern Renaissance, also known as the Dutch Renaissance. The building is said to have been built in 1887, and in the interwar period it was expanded. After the restoration work its façade adorned with an elegant gable and turret is particularly beautiful.
The Dr. Juliusz Roger Rybnik Hospital is
initiated by Dr. Juliusz Roger, who came to
Silesia in 1847 to assume the position of
court physician of Duke Victor I. Juliusz Roger,
one of the most remarkable characters of
Upper Silesia, was not only doctor, but also a

that bear his name, and whose construction
he himself initiated, were put into use in
1869, four years after his death.
The church located at 12 Miejska Street in
Rybnik is one of the parish churches of the
Katowice diocese of the Evangelical Church of
the Augsburg Confession. The origins of the

drying fishing nets, which during the reign of
Frederick William, King of Prussia, was
reconstructed and adapted for the church. The
present building dates from the mid-nineteenth
